My goodness! It feels like I haven’t done a What I Ate Wednesday post in ages!! Between surgery and Christmas, my priorities have been elsewhere, but it sure feels good to be back to the WIAW festivities. Thanks to Jenn for hosting, I simply cannot believe this tradition reached its 100th birthday a few weeks ago!
Bowl: yogurt, bananas, blueberries, corn chex, kashi toasted honey oat cereal, soy milk
Mug: decaf snickerdoodle cookie coffee
While waiting for my brussels to roast I snacked on carrots, pretzels, red pepper hummus, and drunken goat cheese all from Sprouts. Can you see a tend here? I am taking advantage of the fact that there is a Sprouts in close proximity to my parents house because I am sadly without one in Santa Barbara. The roasted red pepper hummus? Seriously a top hummus contender in my book. I loved how you could taste just a touch of tahini, not overpowering but just the right amount to compliment the spices and roasted red pepper. And then there’s the Drunken Goat Cheese, but the name explains is all…
For my actual lunch I got a little inspiration from Liv. Her recent Christmas Feast Salad made me remember how much I LOVE putting apples in salads and playing on the holiday leftovers. I ended up including romaine, roasted brussels + carrots, a granny smith apple, chopped turkey, avocado, and balsamic.
I caved and picked up a Kombucha earlier today. It had been SO long since my last sip of the fizzy beverage and my all-time favorite flavor was calling my name. So I answered.
Thank your Orange County for having enough of a Persian population to provide its residents some legit take-out. I have no idea what the proper names for everything are, but I had chicken, saffron rice, roasted tomatoes, shiraz salad, and lavash bread.
I am genuinely going to miss all the amazing food I was able to eat while being home for Christmas Break. My family’s fridge >>> college student’s fridge.
